Cross Country: Consistency, Hard Work Has Ethan Widlansky ’18 Thriving At Next Level
Ethan Widlansky ’18 never set out to run a record-setting time. The plan, according to Pomona-Pitzer College (Claremont, California) Head Cross Country Coach Kyle Flores, was to hit a personal-best come the month of November. Not September 18.
“I told these guys the goal is to run a personal record (PR) by Nationals, but he had to go against my orders,” Kyle jokingly said. “I was shocked, but not entirely surprised. Ethan has been putting in the work.”
But that day at the UC Riverside Invitational, Ethan clocked a personal-best time of 24 minutes, 10.8 seconds to break the school record held by Will Leer, who is now a professional distance runner. Ethan’s time, which placed him eighth overall, was the fastest amongst Division III runners in the race.
Bush alumni gathered in New York City at the home of Ben Ryan ’97. They enjoyed each other’s company, updates from campus, and a conversation focused on the school’s vision which continues to prioritize and encourage inclusivity.
The Class of 1969 celebrated their Fiftieth Reunion with a tour of campus, a reception with Head of School Percy L. Abram, and a BBQ at the home of Steff ’69 and Hod Fowler. The class reminisced about Bush faculty like Marjorie Livengood and Midge Grove, looked through yearbooks, and revisited treasured spaces on campus like the senior lounge.
